user.css not changing anything

Post by Portman »

Hi,

I am going through the CSS tutorial at https://phoenixcart.org/phoenixcartwiki ... and_Colour and have applied the changes as shown in the tutorial but it is not changing anything ... am i missing something;
I am using 1.0.8.20
and saving changes in templates/default/static/user.css

this is what I have done just to see it it will change anything;

Code: Select all

.breadcrumb {
   background-color: red !important;
}


.is-product .cm-pi-price .display-4 {
	font-size: 1rem !important;
}
but nothing is changing when I refersh my website.

I am using an add-on but that does not seem to control css at all so i dont think it has anything to do with that.

any thoughts? is there anything I need to check?

That User Guide page states:
From v1.0.7.14, if you are making changes to this file, make a copy and upload to templates/override/static/ or whichever template you have chosen in admin.

Firstly what template do you have setup in admin - configuration - My Store - Template Selection.

If default change it to override, then add all your changes into the templates/override/static/user.css.

When you add new lines in there, just return to your website and refresh the browser or click ctrl + F5. All your changes should then show.

CTRL+F5 didn't always work for me, but the tip given here work perfectly:

Here's a post that explains a little bit about templating:

If you (or anyone) has specific questions about the architecture of templating, please feel free to ask in that linked post and I'll try my best to answer without technical jargon.
